Raw Food for Under $10 a day! Carrot Raisin Salad with Aioli

This is a childhood favorite of mine. Creamy, sweet, and a little salty its a perfect summer time treat. I haven't made it for a while as one of the main ingredients was Mayo. After scoring big on 20 pound of carrots this recipe came to mind and I had to come up with a raw version. The Aioli in this recipe is amazing on raw salads and sandwiches or oadded to dips.

1 clove small/medium garlic, crushed

iBlend all ngredients above except olive oil. Once combined with your blender on drizzle in the olive oil and blend on low until smooth and cream and the color hast lightened.
